Spectacular Swimming Pools from Around the World

Even though there may not be snow on the ground where you are, chances are you’ve fallen victim to the winter’s terrible weather, and are stuck at home right now. As we struggle through the winter, it can be hard to think of the day when spring will come.

As we wait, dreaming of warmer weather and outdoor activities can help keep our minds off the biting cold — and what’s a better warm weather activity than swimming? Whether your pool of choice is a serene lap pool or a gigantic, miles-long wave pool, here are some different pools that will inspire you to dream of summer.

1. Gold Energy Pool – Tibet

Nothing says luxury like stepping into a golden pool of water. The exclusive St. Regis Resort is located in Lhasa, Tibet, and boasts among their many different amenities a pool that’s tiled with golden tiles, so it looks like you’re bathing in a pool of liquid gold. The water itself is heated to a comfortable 28-32 degrees, which is just warm enough for you to feel relaxed without being overheated. Plus, for an even more relaxing experience, order a foot massage poolside or a snack, which can be delivered as you soak. This five-star resort only costs $300 per night.

2. Havasu Falls – Arizona

On the other end of the spectrum, a truly spectacular pool can be something completely made by Mother Nature, like the Havasu Waterfall pool in Supai, Arizona. This pool is located on the lands of the Havasupai tribe, and in order to bathe in the pool, you’ll first need to obtain entry from the tribal office. Visit during the summer, and you’ll be pleasantly sweaty by the time you arrive for your dip, which will make it even more refreshing.
